"When I got to be older, at 13, why I helped spike pitch, which we'd do. Spike pitching was where you had somebody run the hayrack. You'd help that guy load his rack so he could take it back to the threshing machine. And they usually had two hayracks, one on each side of the feeder housing on the threshing machine. And they kept that baby going."
